Weird. You'll find though that Office 2007 wouldn't have much differences, and would work the same as the later ones, albeit, with a few visual differences.

Have you tried OpenOffice? Its free, and offers the same kind of thing as office, but is open source, so features can be added to it.

you don't get office with new laptops...
you get a 90 day trial version, (if you go to add remove programs you'll see that it is the 90 day trial version)
(can i assume that you've just bought a sony vaio? (actually I assume that some other manfacturers may do this trial software as well)


as for what you are meant to do,
either go buy office.
or move to a free office productivity tool such as open office.

Don't do that again!

We don't allow the posting of CD keys.

I think we all know that the CD key was in the e-mail. It was reported though.
